Judge Dismisses Ten Commandments Case, Diverts 2 Others

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit
regarding a display incorporating the Ten Commandments at an
eastern Kentucky school district. U.S. District Judge Jennifer
Coffman has also rejected requests for summary judgment in two
similar cases.

The order was issued Friday. Judge Coffman ruled that the suit
against Harlan County school is moot as the plaintiff no longer
attends the school. The plaintiff was a student represented by the
American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky.

Coffman refused to grant summary judgment in similar ACLU suits
against McCreary and Pulaski counties in eastern Kentucky. County
officials there put up the Ten Commandments as part of the
"Foundations of American Law and Government" displays in their
courthouses.
